Empower your operations
Telecom Networks are fragmented: multi-vendor, multi-layered, multi-technology and multi-services. An accurate, end-2-end operational inventory can streamline your operations. Networkmining probes your network, and builds the most accurate representation of your network based on discovered information instead of human-input.
Discover how Networkmining empowers your Operations: service planning and design, service assurance, root-cause analysis, single-point-of-failure, capacity management and more.
The power of Networkmining
By probing your network and connecting datasources, Networkmining discovers the “single version of truth”.
From physical fiber, 5G, MPLS, IP, SDH, PDH, VPN to customer information.
Our out-of-the-box probes are unparalled in quality: no data can be more accurate than discovering what’s in the field.
Higher up-time and reliability
Accelerate root-cause analysis by correlating alarm information.
Connect logical/active to physical/passive inventory.
Predict impacted redundancy and/or customers when planning maintenance/upgrades.
Reduce time to repair.
Model & understand
Discovered information is used to build a digital model of your network. The data is accessible for your teams and developers to integrate in your OSS/BSS eco-system.
Powerful visualisations of your network enable a deeper understanding of “what’s in your network”. Geoschematical, logical, front-panel of devices, … can support your teams.
A powerful API and open datamodel allow your teams to use the accurate inventory for other solutions, processes and teams.
Accurate inventory is the first step towards automation and orchestration.
Networkmining provides this building block to empower your future.
In this example, you see the content of manhole with an optical splice closure (OSC) where 4 cables (A, B, C, D) are connected. The butterfly on the bottom left shows which cables go North, East, South or West. The Port Connector view shows how the cables (A, B, C, D) are guided into the OSC through ports 1, 2, 11 and 13. All views are linked: when you click on a port, the cable is highlighted on the map and the butterfly.
The Marlin Datamodel simplifies your network to routes and structures, and manages the complex infrastructure relationships of millions of records, without sacrificing performance. Marlin can even tap into legacy solutions to ensure that you can manage a multi-vendor environment easily. An accurate inventory allows Marlin to generate schematics on-the-fly so you always have up-to-date insights.
In this example, you click a route and Marlin shows what is inside this trench. On the right, you see the “cross section” of this trench with a cable and two ducts with 7 miniducts inside. Two of these miniducts are occupied with another cable.
Field technicians often have the most precise view of network elements, having a true ‘hands-on’ experience with day to day
operations and maintenance. Marlin extends the power of network updates to the browser – with Marlin Web, other stakeholders have the opportunity to update supplemental network information, such as the ability to attach pictures to document their updates – all in one place.
Safeguarded editing and approval process
Flows can be much more powerful, for example to support the editing process. Marlin uses Edit-Sessions: you define the project area, manage project states (draft, design, commissioning, as-built, …) and Marlin makes sure that no other users can interfere with your project.
Edit-Sessions keep track of the full history of your CRUD action so you can easily undo, rollback to a savepoint and more without impacting your colleagues.
When you are ready with your design or edits, you can post the data to production. Your Edit-Session could go through the various “project states” and can only be posted after validation of “a manager” and has many validation checks. We strongly believe our Edit-Sessions will improve the accuracy of your data while reducing the training requirements for your users.
